    Perhaps it's just because of the printing error and they don't currently have any extra because they only fixed enough to fill subscriptions for the time being?

    Yeah I think this... I have a copy that says it's arriving next month, that I ordered last month.

    EDIT- And I can report that my copy is clean and flat. And it has a seam split on the printed sleeve... Sigh...

    This is turning into the ROTM from Hell. It will be my last record from this subscription service.

    Mine shipped on Nov. 27, arrived at the local regional facility (Chicago) on Dec. 5, and has been "In Transit to Next Facility" since December 9. My office shuts down for the holidays on Friday and won't be able to take deliveries until after the New Year.

    Maybe next time the club screws up, they can splurge for FedEx...

    Hell, I would've been happy if they would just have added the record to my December box (which I received some time ago...as well as the replacements I requested for damaged records). As it is, for everyone watching at home, my rekkid is STILL in Dallas.

    Right there with you. It's been 10 days since my record last was In Transit in my own town. I doubt it's coming. Going to agree with others about these needing to come FedEx or in the next month's box. USPS at Christmas time was not a very wise idea.

    So VMP isn't going to replace my Queen split seam printed sleeve, not super shocked really but I'm hoping that one of you with a totally screwed up copy, once you get your replacement copy, might see fit to PIFing me just the sleeve from your messed up copy? Perhaps?

    Perhaps this has to do with why info@vinylmeplease has yet to contact me back re: my Saturday e-mail about my Queen sounding like ass

    as I confessed in a separate thread, I have come to accept that I truly dislike The Queen, and I find this album unlistenable and unpleasant....
    I am therefore prepared to send it your way....

    let's make a deal.
    I'll send you my copy, which is intact.
    and you'll put a good word with Santa (and my wife) to ensure I can continue to entertain myself in this filthy vice of buying more records.

    what do you say?

    Being 100%, 1st gen Italian and still having plenty of family in the mother country, I know the path out of Italy is usually Germany, Switzerland, Paris and for the very adventurous, America.........what took you to Ireland if you don't mind me asking.

    ....and when you call them "The Queen" it makes me giggle :giggle::giggle::giggle:

    This happened to me too (I'm also in Chicago). It took 7 days until it finally moved in the system, then it took about 36 hours to get to my house.

    Mine went out Nov 29, then got stuck locally in a facility from Dec 2 until Dec 19. Arrived yesterday and..... WORTH THE WAIT!!

    I don't know what happened to USPS that large cities saw since weird bottlenecks, I received Media mail in a timely fashion from other orders, this was a weird USPS screw up

    I'm officially at the point where I'm thinking my January record of the month is going to get here before my Queen November ROTM. I've had 4 other things ship and arrive to me via media mail in the last week, so I'm not even sure whether to blame it on that anymore.

    To the people with the record stuck in Chicago, don’t panic! Mine got out on the 26 as some kind of Christmas miracle.

    Copy replaced, much much better than my first copy! This is a nice pressing now. Still a little noise between tracks but not heard when the music is playing.
